My husband and I have been Amazon Prime members for years. We order all of our household supplies, gifts, crochet supplies and even some food items from Amazon. We wouldn’t be able to save money if we had to pay for shipping. Amazon Prime members get free two day shipping on eligible Prime items plus a ton of other perks such as free movie and TV show streaming and free music streaming.

If you’ve been thinking about getting an Amazon Prime membership, how about you start with a free 30-day trial on me? It’s the least I can do for your support!

Pattern Notes

The number of single crochet used for each chain will vary depending on the size of your curb chain. Each chain in my curb chain measures 3/4″ wide and 8 Sc work perfectly and the instructions are written for a curb chain of this size. Please be aware that you may need to adjust this number if you are working with a different size chain.

The crochet curb chain necklace project will teach you a technique rather than just a pattern. You can apply the techniques to any chain, of any size. I recommend that you watch the video tutorial for guidance and challenge yourself to use what you’ve learned for all sorts of projects!

Most curb chains that you purchase will come with a clasp. You will notice in the video that mine does not. I have chosen to use a satin ribbon as the closure for my necklace. If your chain does not come with a clasp you can purchase one separately or you can even slip stitch the ends together when you are finished crocheting the chain (sized permitted of course).

Check out the Red Heart Sizzle yarn review, I think you’re really going to enjoy working with it!

Written Instructions

crochet necklace

Begin with a slip knot. Insert your hook into the first chain and place the slip knot on your hook. Pull the slip knot through the chain and Ch 1 (counts as a SC). Make 7 more SC in the first chain.

Tip: Make sure your curb chain is laying flat and is not twisted! Once you crochet over the chains, you are locking them into place. 

Make 8 SC in every chain until you have reached the end of your curb chain. Bind off and weave in your ends. You will find that it is easier to use a tapestry needle rather than a darning needle to weave your ends underneath the tight single crochet.
